A RIPPING innings from Matthew Peterson helped see South Services claim first innings points over Clocktower Hotel Brothers on Saturday.

One of only three players to register double figures in Souths innings, Peterson smashed six fours, three sixes, and was dropped twice on his way to a top score of 76.

Souths captain Tom Kroehnert said it was an important knock from Peterson, who also chipped in with three wickets.

"We didn't do overly too badly with the bat but we paid for the loss of early wickets," Kroehnert said. "Matty's knock was well timed and helped us to a good lead."

A patient 42 from Jake Frame helped bump the score over Brothers' total, but Peterson's 9th wicket stand of 78 with Jamie Hough was the main talking point.

Brothers vice-president Tom Howard said it was a vital knock for Souths, and it helped put outright victory beyond their reach.

"Peterson's knock in the first innings put it beyond our reach," Howard said. "We didn't bowl too badly and Beau Sevil took it to the bowlers and did really well."

Sevil struck a patient 63, in a knock that saw seven fours and one six.

Jake Kroehnert's innings of 51 got Brothers off to a superb start in the second, as he and Jake Elward put on a second wicket partnership of 59.

A quickfire 26 from Barney Howard down the order - which saw two sixes and a four - helped increase Brothers score to 198.

Tim Kroehnert said he was happy with the way Souths played.

"We managed to have a lead of 90-odd by the end of the first innings so I was pretty happy with that," Kroehnert said.

"Outright victory went out of the window after the two Jakes scored a few runs."

Kroehnert was happy with the way his bowlers performed, and rued some unfortunate luck that allowed Brothers to sneak their score up.

"I felt our bowlers didn't do too bad a job but Brothers played very well," Kroehnert said.

"They got lucky a few times with some nicks that found space in the slips but everyone chipped in and we got the result."

Howard was pleased with the way the younger players performed, saying the second day at the crease was a confidence building one.

"It's a bit of a pity we didn't do the same in the first innings but it will come in handy as a confidence builder," Howard said.

"We finished the game really well and we'll head into the bye with plenty of work to do.

"The second half of Souths innings showed we had a bit of work to do in the field but we'll get there."
